Using aims and objectives to create abusiness strategy
 
Introduction
When preparing a strategy for success, a business needs to be clear about what it wants toachieve. It needs to know how it is going to turn its desires into reality in the face of intensecompetition. Setting clear and specific aims and objectives is vital for a business to compete.However, a business must also be aware of why it is different to others in the same market.This case study looks at the combination of these elements and shows how Kellogg prepareda successful strategy by setting aims and objectives linked to its unique brand.One of the most powerful tools that organisations use is
branding
. A brand is a name,design, symbol or major feature that helps to identify one or more products from a businessor organisation.

When consumers see the brand, they distinguish the brand from other productsand brands because of these attributes and qualities. Focused on Kellogg, this case studylooks at how aims and objectives have been used to create a strategy which gives Kellogga unique position in the minds of its consumers.
